To add, since I am running this from a Live CD ISO, now there is a
persistent nag dialog asking you to choose to Try or Install Ubuntu to your
hard disc everytime you boot and reach the graphical desktop.  It would have
been alright if whatever it does post making a choice did not slow down the
boot completion to much longer than in 10.04.
